Ihejirika was arrested late last night at his mega residence in Maitama, Abuja, in connection with the arms purchase scandal for which several former military and political chiefs are currently undergoing investigation or trial, among them the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA) retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki.

News Express learnt from its security sources that more than N400 million in cash and 12 cars were among property recovered from Ihejirika’s residence by DSS operatives.

The cars include 2 Bentleys; 3 Range Rovers; 2 Rolls Royce; 1 SLR; and 1 G-Wagon.
